Specific Beta Dose Control Principles
Show OT-30
Surfaces emitting beta radiation are easily shielded
with plastic or other light element materials. Use of
denser materials for shielding of high-energy beta
radiation may produce bremsstrahlung X-rays and
should be avoided.
Beta dose to the lens of the eye can be reduced by
using safety glasses. Safety glasses are commonly
worn for industrial safety concerns in areas where
uranium is handled. Heavy rubber or leather gloves
are effective in reducing the skin dose to the hand,
but their use must be balanced against other safety
concerns, such as hazards from machinery or loss of
manual dexterity.
Industrial safety concerns in a uranium facility may be
more hazardous to personnel than exposure to radiation.
Professional radiological control personnel evaluate the
process in the workplace to ensure workers receive the
maximum overall protection from all hazards, not only
radiological hazards. This is generally done in
cooperation with industrial safety and industrial hygiene
personnel.
